The ability of a system or living organism to adjust its internal environment to maintain a stable equilibrium.
Directional resposnes by plants to stimuli form environment.
Include: Phototropism and Geotropism
Sum of physical and chemical processes occurring within a living organism
Moment a pollen grain, released from anther lands on stigma of (normally) another flower.
Moment the nuclei of pollen grain and ovule fuse together
Series of changed in endometrium in preparation for possible implantation of a fertilized ovum.
The uterus lining breaks down and eventually passes out through the vagina

A condition in which both alleles of a gene pair in a heterzygote are fully expressed.
Is the change in the DNA of a cell.
The gradual change in the range of organisms on the Earth
The mechanism by which new species arise through evolutionary changes
By carefully controlling which examples of a species are allowed to mate, humans are able to rapidly change the average phenotype to obtain only those individuals with desirable features.
